A Day at the Zoo…

Oceanside Pier

Our next stop was Oceanside, California, a little town centrally located for all the side trips we planned to take…

FIRST TRIP: San Diego Zoo

Did you know…

1. Polar bears fur is not white, but rather clear and hollow.

2. Koala bears are not bears at all, and they sleep about 22 hours each day. Koala’s get very little nutrition from their eucalyptus only diet, therefore, they have very little energy.

3.Elephants dust themselves with dirt and hay to protect their very sensitive skin from sunburn.

4. Horses are native to North America, contrary to what some history books say…

5. Warthogs really do have a face that only a mother could love. The warthogs here were watched for days by Disney animators while they were making The Lion King. Not only did they want to be able to draw them well, but also be able to portray warthog behaivor correctly.
